Junie B. Jensen - in Memory

Junie B. Jensen July 21, 2007 (Gotcha day 3/4 years old)- June 29, 2017 AKA: My littlest. Bo-bittlest. The littlest, bo-bittlest of the bo-bittlest clan. Mick’s Widdle Waddle. Bug. Buggest. Beagle butt I got you almost 10 years ago from people who couldn’t see past your anxiety to understand your value. But I did. I saw the soul in your eyes. I knew you belonged with me. You ran out of their house and saw me and peed on their porch mat. I laughed and you jumped into my arms. You never looked back.

I have no idea WTF is going on

I have no idea WTF is going on

I have no idea WTF is going on. The world feels so chaotic right now. I believe we are living in unprecedented times. It’s a clash of human tribes, with constant travel across nation states making our boundaries bleed. Mobile phones and social media give us constant connection to one another.

Die Before You Die

Die Before You Die

I posted this meditation originally on August 14th, 2017. I was recovering from shoulder surgery, two dogs had passed away, and I was pondering the decisions that took me from the life I made in NJ, to the one I have now. I didn't know what to expect then, but now, looking back, I know the lesson of surrender & acceptance I learned during this difficult passage is what continues to sustain me today. I hope someone else finds comfort knowing peace is possible, even in the darkest moments, when we're able to surrender to what IS. We may not...

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Happy New Year from the Serenity Pack. They were all once dogs no one else wanted. Now they’re loved unconditionally. As we roll into a new decade, they remind me that no matter how bad things are, Hope is never far, and love is always possible, no matter what. We can always choose to let it all go, start again. Wishing you the very best in 2020
